defense of ryan's performance so they're grabbing for libya. >> i want to go back to that because obstruction is not discussed enough on the national stage and paul ryan kept with this lie of we're trying to be bipartisan and biden repeatedly pointed out areas of obstruction. he pointed out congress' 7% approval rating, which is the point of obstruction, to ruin congress' rating so americans will throw out the party in power. he talked about the embassy security money being removed, he talked about if they just get out of the way. even the stimulus letter moment, which i loved. ryan is trying to attack the stimulus, and he said, well, you asked gor stimulus money twice. you wrote me two letters which proves republicans know that these policies are valuable and important and helpful to americans and still they oppose them. >> indeed. joy, the republican divorce from reality based thinking was evident inside the debate hall but you saw it outsides a well. take a listen to this. >> who said communist down here? what do you mean by that? >> well all you have to do is study it out, jus
